BROOKLYN, Ohio - Brooklyn Mayor Richard Balbier presented CleanLife Energy, LLC, headquartered in Brooklyn, with a $25,000 Job Retention Creation Business Grant Tuesday.
The grant will be used for the expansion of the company's laboratories to develop new and ongoing technologies in the field of aftermarket LED lighting products.
"We are a company with sustainable practices and the city of Brooklyn acknowledges us. That's a great feeling," said CleanLife CEO Justin Miller in a press release.
With the grant, CleanLife Energy, LLC is making a $100,000 investment in the design, development and testing of LED lights, LED drivers, lithium ion batteries, cable harnessing and other clean power technologies.
The move sets the platform for moving most of their product development operations here to the United States, specifically Brooklyn, which could include manufacturing.
Mayor Balbier was pleased the city of Brooklyn can award the entrepreneurial company with the grant.
"The city of Brooklyn is excited to help young companies like CleanLife Energy get started," said Balbier in a press release. "We know they will do well in their field and wish them nothing but success."
